Guides for Mirimichi and/or Margaree

headed up to NS last week of June to first week in July with my wife.
We are thinking of heading back through NB so I would like to fish either the Margaree or the Mirimichi if possible.
Any recommendations on guides for either river? How do I contact the appropriate people?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

For the Margaree, try Robert Chiasson.

I've been using what is now Bullock's Lodge on the Miramichi for almost 20 years: www.bullockslodge.com Tell 'em Gary Tanner sent you.

Magaree

No Guide required

Advice Get a Salmon Pools map at the museum, very small watershed so use the map and discover the pools, run and enjoy a few days....

Blue and black in size 6-8 are your friends

I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach

another great choice for the Margaree

I second Mr. Forsythe and also John Hart. He is the president of the Margaree Salmon association.

Tight lines,

I agree with Back Eddy, no guide required on the Margaree. Get your license and go fishing.

very true - one is not required, but for an outsider there for a day or two- having someone who knows the water cuts the learning curve. I also found that even with the maps available, finding the egress points was not always an easy thing to do.

Mr Forsythe was a very entertaining gentleman to spend a few days on the water with. I could have saved a couple dollars, but the experience was well worth it.
